The Roman Pompeii Style Gladius was the first major design change made to the Roman short sword. Emphasizing the Roman tactic of the thrust rather then the cut. Although still capable of delivering cutting blows, the Pompeii style is designed to provide the maximum penetration in the thrust. Using this technique the Roman Legions dispatched their enemies quickly and efficiently.

The Albion Next Generation Pedite Roman Gladius is a beautiful example of the Pompeii Gladius. The blade is hand-ground from high carbon steel to a fine satin finish, sharpened and heat-treated by hand in the Albion Forge Shop. The guard and pommel are hand-crafted of walnut, the grip turned from holly, and the inset guard plate and pommel nut are of bronze. Weighs approximately 1 Pound 7.4 Ounces.
